Benefits of A Climate Controlled Storage Facility
Posted on: November 15, 2016 | by: admin
When searching for a storage company to hold your belongings, it’s important to find a storage facility that offers climate controlled storage. Climate controlled storage will ensure that your valuable, environmentally sensitive items remain in their optimal condition.
What Do I Put In A Storage Facility?
A climate controlled storage facility will keep your possessions in a safe temperature that is resistant to humidity, pests, dust, and other environmental threats. Hall-Lane is pleased to provide our customers with climate controlled storage to ensure that the following items receive the protection they deserve:
- Wooden or Leather Furniture
Unfortunately, extensive moisture exposure can prompt wood to crack or rot. If you are planning on storing wooden furniture such as nightstands, bed frames, tables and chairs, and entertainment centers, a storage facility with climate controlled is a necessity. Since leather is also sensitive to extreme moisture, leather furniture should be stored in a climate controlled area as well.
- Household Appliances
There are many expensive household appliances that can endure rust, cracking, and permanent damage when stored in an area that is too hot or too cold. Hall-Lane highly recommends that refrigerators, washers and dryers, microwaves, and ovens are all stored in a climate controlled storage unit so that these costly belongings last for as long as possible.
- Musical Instruments
If you are storing a musical instrument, temperature control is essential. Strings, percussion, brass, and woodwind instruments can all be damaged by extreme humidity and temperatures. Whether you’d like to store a musical instrument for a short or long period of time, it is a delicate piece of equipment that needs to be placed in a climate controlled facility.
If your electronics are being stored in areas that are susceptible to drastic temperature changes and humidity, they will likely become damaged. Televisions, computers, audio gear, and other forms of electronics can be kept safe in a storage unit with climate control.
If you’re placing your sweaters, coats, pants, and other winter clothing items in storage for the summer, you need to make sure that they do not develop mold or mildew. Climate controlled storage will ensure that your clothing remains in tip-top form so that you can wear it again once the cold weather hits.
